REAR WIPER WASHER NOT WORKING

2005 BMW X3

Electrical problem
2005 BMW X3 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 54000 miles

Hi, my rear washer/wiper has stopped working today for no apparent reason. It worked about 1 week ago when I last used it. I have checked the fuses in the glovebox mounted fuse box - both OK.

Is this a common fault? If not what are wire colours and where are the plugs/sockets in this circuit located so I can do some voltage checks.

Thank you

Testing for voltage is probably not going to be as effective as first scanning the car with proprietary BMW equipment designed to scan all the cars systems. The problem may be in the control module and voltage checks will not be of any great value if it is a digital communication problem.

OK, I shall get her into the garage and hooked up to the diagnostic machine.
